this is the second installment in the awesome borrow-ment of the barielle polishes i embarked on a while ago :D

blackened blue (full mani)
i saw two of the barielle's that looked remarkably similar to two pure ice's i happened to have purchased the day before i borrowed them all and decided to do some comparison swatching.

get mauve-ing vs. pure ice taupe drawer
i think get mauveing has a bit more purple where taupe drawer leans more red/pink but they're too close for an untrained eye to catch.

u-concrete me vs. pure ice kiss me here
the barielle is slightly more blue and opaque while the pure ice is more of a true gray. i say save your money on both of the above, and get the pure ice versions because the formula was easier to work with and $2 compared to $8 (+ s&h probably) isn't really a comparison to me ;) but of course, you should decide for yourselves and that's what these swatches are here for (also my enjoyment/boredom haha). take care chica bonitas!
